Controversy at the Rellys for second consecutive year
For the second year in a row, controversy reigns at the Relly Awards, as Regis Philbin
again is shut out in the "Best Regis" category - again at the hands of a "Saturday Night
Live" veteran. This year, comedian and actor Jimmy Fallon took home the prestigious
"Best Regis" Golden Stool.|
Philbin accepted the award on behalf of the absent Fallon, but shocked the
Relly audience by reading a purported letter from Fallon, essentially passing
the award to Philbin. The document later was revealed to be a fraud. After
the broadcast, Philbin asserted that "Next year will be the year that regis is
In another shocking twist, porcine princess Miss Piggy eked out a win in
the "Best Non-Human Guest" category, triumphing over such competition as
Mariah Carey's dog Jack, "Star Wars" superstar Chewbacca and Barney the Purple
Dinosaur. Singing superstar Carey attempted to call in during the Relly
taping to express her disappointment over Jack being passed over in favor of
the popular pig.
Another unhappy nominee was talk show host Jimmy Kimmel, who lost the
"Best New Co-Host" Relly to "American Idol" host Ryan Seacrest. Kimmel is
rumored to be readying a rebuttal for air on tonight's "Jimmy Kimmel Live".
Philbin and fellow host Kelly Ripa were the biggest winners on Friday, and
the only nominees to walk away with multiple Golden Stools (two and three,
respectively), while cast of "Everybody Loves Raymond" won in the "Funniest
Guest" category. "American Idol's" Bo Bice accepted his "Best Reality Guest"
award live via satellite from Nashville, and Backstreet Boys Kevin Richardson,
AJ McLean and Howie Dorough checked in from Los Angeles to receive their Relly
for "Favorite Music Guest".

by Andrew from UK|
I think Mariah is unable to let go of lip-syncing parts of songs completely. In that My All video down there, she does pretty well. I dare say it even sounds "good". But the first chorus is lipped, even though she was singing those notes in that voice throughout the concert. I think she is so lacking in confidence that miming is her "blanky". Why i... read more

||Christmas shows (47,711)
by Lee from UK|
That poster for the Christmas shows says "first annual". Does that mean this is going to be a yearly thing that Mariah is doing from now on? I sure hope so. I would plan my holidays around this and go and see it every year.

||Why Mariah will never work with Walter again (47,710)
by Baby from Sweden|
He won't give Mariah her props (a.k.a. R.E.S.P.E.C.T.) for being the principle songwriter on their collaborations. Notice how he dodges even mentioning the melodies and lyrics Mariah wrote herself on songs like AIWFCIY in every interview he gives to this day. He makes it all about his own contributions and will even go as far as to belittle the gre... read more
